62,000 Professionals Attended E3

(May 21, 2001) The seventh annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) concluded at the Los Angeles Convention Center Saturday, having drawn more than 62,000 interactive entertainment professionals from more than 70 countries, according to the show's owner, the Interactive Digital Software Association (IDSA).

More than 400 exhibitors showcased thousands of computer and video games and next generation technologies, including more than 750 products seen for the first time ever at E3 2001.

According to the annual pre-show exhibitor survey, approximately 80 percent of the products seen at the show are anticipated to hit store shelves by the coming holiday season.

"2001 is an extremely exciting year for the industry, with the introduction of new hardware and the debut of stunning new software," said Douglas Lowenstein, president of the IDSA, the trade association that represents U.S. computer and video game publishers. "E3 is the launch pad for games that will shape the future of entertainment."

This year's show kicked-off with a ground-breaking keynote panel with top executives from Microsoft Corporation, Nintendo of America and Sony Computer Entertainment. The panelists discussed the future of next generation consoles and their impact on consumers and the industry in the coming year.

In addition, leading industry experts joined together to strategize with and teach E3Expo attendees about hot topics and business opportunities in interactive entertainment during a three-day educational conference program.

The show will return to Los Angeles, May 23 to 25, 2002.
